I am thoroughly astounded by the level of precision that this rifle delivers! I picked it up second hand for 300 bucks at a gun show last month in.308 and just slapped a SS 20x42 Scope on it yesterday. Stepped out behind the house and was able to consistently hit cinder block halves at 500 yards all day! I even hear that Timney has produced an accutrigger variant for the Axis for around a hundred bucks! Thinking about picking it up and stepping this rifles game up even further! I figured with a lot of peoe wondering about Savage Axis rifles on the net i would put someone's mind at ease.Anyone else have any thoughts on this bargain rifle?

Mine is stainless forgot to mention that, on savages site the new Axis with stainless is 450 i believe, and the SS 20x42 scope is 299 on SS site great deal i hear from many reviews inthere that the scope easily touches a 1000 but i haven't had time to get to a 1000 yard range... My back yard only goes to about 500 and the there is woods making 1000 damn near impossible.... Thinking about just clearing the damn woods hahaha

I have the axis XP in .30-06 and it came with a lowed sportsman Bushnell 3-9x40mm scope and find no issues with it. I do have a Remington 700 which I put the Bushnell on and found the weight overall of the savage to be lighter than the Remington which I'll enjoy when I go deer hunting.

People bash the 770 Remington all the time. I have no problems hitting a golf ball with a 770 at 200 yards. I think most of the haters have never fired the weapon they are running down. If the haters have fired it they couldn't hit the broadside of a barn from the inside. So they need to justify the $1000 bucks they spent trying to compensate for their lack of skill.

I think they bash it because some do not function properly. I went to the range with a guy and his would jam up after he shot it. Basically he couldn't get the bolt all the way back the cartridge wouldn't come out.

That may be true for some people. I paid $350 for a 770 with a scope in 270 win. I later paid $440 for a 700 in a 270 win. Any extra money I paid was for the best optics I could afford. Still way below $1000.

But I get your point. It DOES shoot a bullet. And if you're good, you could probably use a slingshot. Not being a wise-guy... I mean that.

Did you go to the Golf-course to shoot that golf ball? :D I've always thought they could make golf interesting if you combined golf with trap shooting.
Extra points for shooting a golfer. JUST KIDDING!! :eek:

I picked up a 308 with threaded barrel at academy a month or so ago for $269 and was I impressed. It shoots great and just feels good.

Just dont try to remove the recoil pad the damn tab brakes right off an u have a square hole in the top of the stock. I have a axis 223 in the truck it gets the hell bounced out of it every day. Shoots great the stock is so cheap it begs me for money but its always ready to pop a yote. An yes its black on black an was $269.99 new in box.
